"Don't let yesterday use up too much of today."
Cherokee Indian Proverb

1. I've enjoyed all the tennis matches in the Australian Open, but I'm relieved it's over so I have more time for other things. Since I don't spend much time watching television on a regular basis, when I do get caught up in tennis ... too many other things fall through the cracks. It's a good thing there are only 4 'major's each year ;--)

2. Having my sister home for 3 months is a blessing. I've missed her while she traveled with her husband in their RV and will, no doubt, miss her when she leaves again in early April ... but for now it's good to reconnect.

3. As for reconnecting, I met up with a a friend from Junior High & High School that I'd not seen in more than 25 years and we had a long delightful visit. We plan to do it again ... and perhaps even create a 'writer's group' together eventually.

Your motivator picture is absolutely gorgeous. And I like the two sayings that go with it.

Looks like blessings were abundant for you! Wonderful! My blessing this winter has been 23 inches of snow -- more than we evr had since I moved here in '85.

Beautiful shadow work, storyteller! That's exciting news about the possible writer's group--I hope that comes through!

Lovely photo and I like this idea of listing blessings! Another tennis "nut", like me! Those 5 hour matches really eat up the time! I wish Federer had won. My blessings right now are that the ice is melting and most of the people I know finally have power back!

Good Morning, Virginia,
As always I enjoy the succinct wisdom of the quotes you offer. 'Don't let yesterday use up too much of today.' That's so good!

Your blogs, your thoughts inspire me a lot. But m not able to follow them in my regular life. For a while to follow them is good. But later it become impossible to be so nice calm generous.
